what are skype credits

Does anyone know how that works? I know the MySpace IM gives you 10 free minutes, but I made an account with skype.com, I guess and I tried to call someone to see if it would work, or if I had to make a payment or put in a credit card number first, but it didn't ask me any of that. It just let me call. It. show more Does anyone know how that works?

Best Answer: Skype gives your "first call" to PSTN landlines for free to over 30 countries around the world.

Skype was showing you that 2.1 cents/min is the amount the call would normally cost you for the call - but being that it was your first, you were not

charged. In fact, there is no way they could charge you, as you didn't give your credit card info.

But, in future, all calls are "pre-paid". So, to continue to make calls to PSTN land phones (and mobiles), you need to buy Skype Credits. You can purchase as little as $10 U.S. credit for future calls. If you try to make another call with no credit, it will simply not go through and you will be asked to purchase credits first.

With credits, you can send SMS messages to mobiles, too!

The best deal is to purchase SkypePro for $3/month. Then you get UnLimited USA/Canada calling - including voicemail and conference calling - free.

And remember, Skype-Skype calls are always FREE, and that includes Video and conferencing between all your Skype friends!

And, if you don't want to be tied to a computer, you can get the Skype Wireless Phone Adapter from Linksys.

The CIT-400 does not require computer to make Skype calls.
